Boho Scarf Maxi Dress

Forget going to the fabric store, raid your closet or thrift store for lightweight scarves to make this Boho Scarf Maxi Dress! You will need three lightweight square scarves that are the same size and 1/4 inch elastic to make the straps. Who knew you could learn how to make a dress with a total of four items? This DIY maxi dress takes less than an hour to sew up, so you can make it in the afternoon and wear it out later than night! DIY fashion does not have to be expensive or take a lot of time, and this DIY dress is the evidence of that.

Talk about eye-catching! This would be a perfect outfit for an outdoor concert this summer.

The boho style is one of my favorites for the summer. This dress is so stunning! I can see it getting a ton of compliments every time you wear it.

Have you tried wearing dresses like this? I can never figure out what kind of shoes and stuff to wear with them without looking like I am dressed as Stevie Nicks for Halloween.

In the 60's, we wore a flat brown sandal that had a loop for the big toe and it had a strap around the ankle. It was very plain, had no heel on it. Very much the hippie-thing to wear.
